News feeds from Gosh! Media
What are Gosh! Media news feeds?
We all love stuff that makes life that little bit easier, don't we? News feeds provide a really easy way for you to see when websites that you're interested in have added new content. You get the very latest headlines and other bits 'n' bobs – including video – straight to your computer as soon as it's published, without having to visit the websites individually.
News feeds – also called RSS, which stands for 'Really Simple Syndication' – are designed to be read by computers rather than humans, which means that feeds can also be used to transfer information automatically from one website to another, without any human intervention at all.
What do I need to get started?
What you need, in most cases, is a news reader. No, sadly, we're not talking about Fiona Bruce, but rather a piece of software that checks the feeds you have subscribed to and allows you to read any new stuff that's been added. There are different types of news reader – some are accessed using your browser and some are downloadable applications.
Browser-based news readers allow you to access your RSS feeds from any computer, whereas the downloadable applications mean you can store them on your own computer (in which case, you should get out more). There are many news readers available that work on various operating systems, so make sure you pick one that will work with your platform.
Many browsers – including Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer and Safari – automatically check for news feeds when you visit a site, displaying the orange RSS icon when they find one. Of course, this makes subscribing to feeds much simpler. Hooray!
How do I get news feeds from Gosh! Media?
To subscribe to the Gosh! Media news feed, click on the orange RSS button. You can then either drag the URL of the feed into your news reader or cut and paste the URL into a new feed in your news reader.
When you subscribe to a news feed – including ours – you do not disclose your email address, so you are not increasing your exposure to spam, viruses, phishing, identity theft or any of the other nasties out there in the big, bad world.
And, if you want to stop receiving feeds from us at any time, you can just remove the feed from your news reader. Simple.
